The Kolinsky (Mustela Siberica) is a species of the Mink family, a member of the Weasel clan and a native of Siberia and northeast China. There is no doubt Kolinsky is the best hair available for the manufacture of artists’ brushes due to being conical in shape, strong in character with a long tapered point and thick belly. The excellent snap & spring together with immense liquid holding capacity make them a first choice for watercolourists. The high cost of the hair being the only major drawback (usually weight for weight three times the price of gold). Once used however the difference compared to others is well worth the difference in price. Consider Kolinsky Sable a long term investment. Personally as a brushmaker this is my absolute favourite hair to work with, indeed a privilege.

I love this brush.It holds enough paint to be able to do detail work while not worrying about the tip drying out. I find that I primarily use it for two things: highlights and details. That's right, I use a size 2 for eyeballs on Infinity miniatures. And my eyes have never looked so good. I have a size 1 and 0 of the Series 33, and rarely ever touch them.The longer length of bristle allows the brush to hold more paint and keeps the tip from drying out. It must be some kind of sorcerer's hair that they use in this brush, because it's pure magic. Even more amazing, the brush is the easiest I've ever owned to keep clean. A simple swish in water will normally wick all of the paint out. Transitioning from the Army Painter brushes, this was a revelation.It may take you some time to transition to the longer bristles if you are used to shorter ones, but the brush is so wonderful to use
